essentially flip flopped on every single position. >> there is a review on the debate i saw, romney seemed no be on the defensive, and shifted rapidly, and looked like he was about to tear up doing his closing remarks. >> stephanie: yeah. i think there was a little piling on on the part of pundits. i don't think it was has bad as people -- it wasn'tn't a reason for chris matthews to strike out -- >> it wasn't the president's best performance -- >> it was the worst debate ever! it is the end of the world! >> stephanie: he was on bill maher a couple of weeks ago and bill maher told him to cam down and he goes this is calm! let's go to marilyn? hey, marilyn. oh, dear. the president talking about the jobs numbers. >> obama: today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy. >> stephanie: and here is mitt romney. >> romney: when i'm president of the united states -- [ cheers and applause ] >> romney: that unemployment rate is going to come down not because people are giving up and dropping out of the
and mitt romney. here is a live look at debate hall at university of denver. we'll again with our debate expert, brett o'donnell of o'donnell and associates, he advised mr. romney earlier this year, coached him in what was considered to be his most successful debate in the premarry in the state of florida. >> wouldn't it be nice if people didn't make accusations somewhere else they weren't willing to defend here? >> nice to see you again. not to have you next to us in the studio but great to see you. >> good to see you. >> let's walk through what we can expect tonight. i know you're not coaching either candidate. what would your advice be? mitt romney must do what and not do what? president obama must do what and not do what? >> sure. governor romney has to make the debate about the president's economic policies and he has to connect those to the economic conditions we're in now. right now, people believe the economy is bad, but they're not blaming the president for it. tonight governor romney, standing face-to-face with president obam has to connect those two things. he can't get defens
for watching. mitt romney is following up his debate performance in denver last week by introducing the country to the new mitt romney. the new mitt romney is not the candidate we've seen for the last couple of years. last week romney lied about his policies on taxes, education and health care. today the candidate's positions went under the knife during a speech at the military institute. romney laid out a complete reversal on his strategy for middle east peace. >> i'll recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel. >> the new mitt romney is committed to a two-state solution, but this is not what mitt romney told a group of donors in private. >> priceless tape. direct from romney's mouth, you hope for some stability and hope something will happen. listen to the new mitt romney today in his opinion on hope. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. >> the new mitt romney didn't flinch when he made a false
an advantage in the way the non-rules are in this debate tonight. and i also think that mitt romney has come off a series of really easy debates. we have to remember, mitt romney triumphed in a republican presidential field that was the worst republican presidential field in the history of the republican party. those are the debates he won. he was the one on the stage who did not look outright insane, compared to the rest of them. that isn't going to work for him tonight. he's going against the best debater mitt romney has ever been up against in his life. this is going to be, i think, a really great debate. >> preparing for this, i went back and looked at some of the 1994 debates between romney and kennedy, looking at some of that to see, you know, how does he deal with a democratic opponent? we've seen him debate a lot of republicans, but not a lot of democrats. and if it's half as fun as it was between him and ted kennedy, we are in for a very, very fun night ahead. lawrence, thank you for that, particularly on the rules. i think that was a really important point. we'll talk with you agai
will host the first presidential debate this evening. mitt romney has been preparing for the debates in denver the past few days. president obama has been preching in neff. both have been keeping low profiles in recent days. meanwhile republicans are seizing on comments vice president joe biden made at a campaign stop yesterday to say the obama administration's economic policies are not working. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> of course the middle class has been buried. they're being bear ruried by regulations, taxes, borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> biden later tried to clarify his comment by saying the middle class was buried by policies mitt romney and paul ryan supported. >>> and mitt romney's campaign has called tonight's debate a restart of the campaign. right now the republican nominee trails by 3% among likely voters. that is according to the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. that is also within the poll's margin of error. the president leads by se

related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larry sabato, director of center for politics at the university of virginia. larry, historically speaking how big of a deal are the first debates really? >> well it can be a dig deal, jenna. of course governor christie was right. he got off message as you know because part of the amusing previous view to a presidential debate is the attempt by both sides to run down their own candidate. about how horrible a debater they are and the other side is so terrific. so governor christie may be committed a behalf by telling the truth. if you look historically, there is a pretty good chance that mitt romney can make up some ground. usually, not always, but usually the challenger to the incumbent just by standing on the stage and doing a credible job, can make up so
and mitt romney doing final debate preps, their runningmates hit the campaign trail. vice president biden was speaking about romney's economic plans when he said this -- >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle-class that has been buried the last four years. >> reporter: republicans called it a stunning admission that the middle-class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course the middle-class has been buried, buried by regulations, buried by taxes, buried by borrowing, they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, a politics-free day for contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle. president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aide say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to a
tonight's debate. more importantly, this is a stage where president obama and governor mitt romney will hopefully define their positions on the key domestic issues facing our nation. that's what's on the agenda for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying
to hear from a romney. this will be his first post- debate appearance. he is here with his running mate, paul ryan, and they had some previous speakers warming up the crowd, including the virginia lt. gov on the stage now. that candidates should be out shortly. live coverage here on c-span. >> his lofty promises of hope and change. four years later, the rhetoric has stated. it has been replaced by a record. is character of failed leadership in every respect. it is time for him to go. this president's economic policies have failed our country. no one in america can say they are better off today than they were four years ago at. 23 million of our fellow americans are suffering because they are out of work and looking for jobs. and we have had an implacable breakup of over 8% for 43 straight months. more americans living and poverty, more americans ought the stamps, more americans to whom the american dream has become an unattainable dream. that is not america. it is time for him to go. [applause] his economic policies and spending policies are threatening the financial foundation of our c
class. what's your explanation. >> well, i mean, that's the debate between governor romney and president obama. i mean, you're right. and that's the middle class is really struggling. something that's been true really for 30 years, when you look past what's happened in the middle class the last 30 years, it's basically treading water and it's gotten much tougher in the past four years, and this big debate between the two sides is whether it was, the bush policies, that preceded that president obama that was a major contributing factor or is-- a the romney campaign is trying to argue with the stimulus measures and other steps that the obama administration took. >> well, congressman, what is going to get us out of it? do you think that of continued policy of raising taxes on the rich, that's the policy. a continued regulation, under obamacare, and financial reform, continued regulation, higher taxes, and do you think that will pro he dues growth in america's economy? >> no, not at the time. the basic debate here in my view is, is political dysfunction in e should be dealing with the debt a
is surfacing before the first debate. >> reporter: dave, the romney campaign insists it had nothing to do with releasing this video but conservative talk show hosts are making a very big deal about it, showing it -- saying it shows president obama engaged in a divisive class warfare. it's from a 2007 speech at an historicry black speech and in it, he praises jeremiah wright who he has denounce -- denounced and the victims did not get the help they needed in hurricane katrina. >> where is new orleans now? >> reporter: the obama campaign says release the video is a transparent attempt to detract from mitt romney attacking those americans who don't pay taxes. president obama took a break and visited hoover dam yesterday. back to you. >> thank you. there will be events in the bay area at democratic headquarters in antioch and the sonoma county republican party and the tea party express will be holding events as well. in san francisco a group called technology for obama will hold a debate watch party at the temple nightclub. and you can, of course, watch the debate live right here on ktvu chan
and just three points in nevada where the debates are taking place tonight. with both romney and the president wrapping up final debate practice yesterday, joe biden was in north carolina and paul ryan in iowa. they traded jabs over the middle class. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been buried. we agree. >> mitt romney is under pressure to give more details into both his tax reform proposal and plans for the middle class. yesterday, he finally offered up an idea saying in order to pay for his reform each taxpayer would have a limit on how much they could deduct. the number he threw out was $17,000 and compared that to a bucket saying you can take whatever deductions you want but once you hit $17,000 that's it. we heard his plan for undocumented immigrants. he would not revoke the temporary limitations adopted by the president but if elected there would be no more protections. we're coming back after the break. >> i wouldn't be where i am today if it wasn't for capella university. i go to work every day and know that i
today, that's the final debate before the election. so mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a lot of anti-american attitudes out there. he senses there is a moment now for him to take advantage and a
remaining presidential debates. when's the strategy behind today's speech from mitt romney? is he laying a pillar, a foundation of his campaign that may have been tampered with especially as jen brings up going overseas and kind of offended the relationship with british? >> well, the statement of the president's team is very disturbing i think because it's really beyond the pale. you don't go that far before you hear the speech. people don't want to hear that kind of discussion right now. they want to hear about substantive issues and therein i agree with karen and up to governor romney to deliver that but this is a great time politically for the governor to have this speech. he's had a great debate. the speech when the president, there's an opening to attack the president on foreign policy. he's still hurt on the benghazi issue. there's room for him to grow there so that's also very important. >> joel, let's get in to that as susan brings up about benghazi. a topic americans want the know more about and the language today on libya is strongest yet heard on that topic. the governor expec
sides are doing it and to not quite mediate in that way. both campaigns, the romney campaign is particularly in the last few days has said that during the debates they're going to fact check live which sometimes can mean just saying something isn't true when it is true or saying something is true when it isn't true. and i think that because the speed has really increased, there's a lot more for reporters to do. um, there's also the issue i mentioned about money and spending and keeping an eye on that. i think there's some great work that's being done in tracking spending and donors and figuring it out. but there's also a lot more money on the table because of citizens united. so that's a real challenge. and in some ways to bring the optimism and pessimism together about this, i think that this might be the election cycle where both sides -- it's become clear what the tools are for both sides. there's money, there's media access, there's social media, there's ways to quickly get information out and really ask questions. and the last few weeks before people actually vote, we're
